Dm*Get in the car we're late for the gig
C E AmBut don't go too fast it's been snowin' since 10 am
C E AmWe never will be this free again
DmJust over the bridge, crossin' the Gatineau
C E AmTo the side that I know where the light becomes strange
C E AmAnd we'll never be this free again.
DmOn our way home singin' the songs that we learned on our mother’s knee
C E AmFour black sheep in need
C E AmTryin' or cryin' to be free.
D Dsus4 D Asus4 A Asus4 AJesse's been drinkin' again and again he won't believe, he can't believe
Asus4 A Asus4 A GWe can see right through his soul.
DmMom and Dad are on their way, they know these roads
C E AmThey've been travelling a lonely life.
C E AmBlack sheep they too were born in the night.
DmAnd we'll meet at the lodge to suck on life as we look up at the sky
C E Amthat we don't feel the same.
C E AmAnd we'll never be this free again.
F#m Esus4 EMay walked away in the snow sayin' she was through.
F#mAnd Frere Jacques would never want to ring the bell to tell us all
Esus4 EWe already knew
A* Bm*That out there in the freezing night we will not be all right
A*Four black sheep travellin' different speeds
Angry at the world Losing their way in the cold blue snow.
E7*Red on black on white - it glowed.
C E AmWe will never feel that free again.
C E AmWe will never feel that free again.
Em*After the show back on the road to Montreal
D F#m BmThere were diamonds piercin' our eyes
D E BmAnd the snow pilin' up on either side.
EmJesse took the wheel, there was an appeal to stop the ride
D F#m Bmbut we were just four black sheep in the night.
D F#m BmTryin' to hold on for our lives.
EmWe never made it home - spinnin' out on the road
D F#m BmWe took to the sky where we were finally free for the last time.
D F#m BmFlyin' high at the end of our lives.
D F#m BmFour black sheep deep in the white light
D F#m BmRed on black on white in the night
D F#m BmI said red on black on white in the night
D F#m BmI said red on black on white in the night
D F#m BmRed on black on white in the night
D F#m BmRed on black on white in the night…
